A traditional Greek salad doesn’t use any lettuce. The fresh veggies, cheese and dressing shine all on their own.

- 5 fresh oregano leaves, chopped (or 1 tsp dried)
- GF feta cheese, to taste

- In a lidded jar, mix garlic and balsamic vinegar, and let sit for 10 minutes (this takes the "edge" off). Add remaining dressing ingredients, shake until combined.
